Agricultural School of Arts and Crafts (1937)

Having started its activity in 1937-1938, it succeeded to Augusto César’s Asylum of Arts and Crafts, belonging to the former General Council of the District of Vila Real, and meanwhile integrated in the Misericórdia of Vila Real with all its "goods and movable assets”​​, with the intention of accommodating the "poor boys of the region".

There started to operate an elementary school, tailor, shoemaker and carpenter workshops, the crafts of stonework and cereals grinding, bakery and culinary services, and agricultural techniques.

The Agricultural School of Arts and Crafts, which played, over three decades, an invaluable role in the education and training of dozens of youngsters, was finally extinguished on August 23, 1967, when there were four students admitted.
